She, who has many dresses just got one more!
She, who swims a lot has got a new dress with tiny swimming ladies - and claims that the tiny bathing babes look a bit like tiny shrimps!
And, she loves her shrimp ladies dress!
This is my first attempt with Blaverry Patterns. I've been drooling over this Xandan dress pattern for quite some time and with the summer holidays approaching now was the perfect time to sew my baby girl a new summery dress.
Wilma is tall for her age. She turned nine in march is 145+ cm tall and average built. Based on her measurements I made her a size 8. It was pretty loose fitting and the bodice was a bit too long imo, so I shortened it and took the bodice in a bit. It's still pretty roomy in the waist area so next time I might taper the bodice a bit towards the waist. The bodice is fully lined - and the skirt has pockets! Ah, pockets. Probably the best part if you ask Wilma. I love the high(er) neckline on this dress.
The gorgeous shrimp ladies poplin fabric is from The Sweet Mercerie but unfortunately (and understandably) sold out.
